Ice sheet to collapse faster than expected – scientists

The first computer models that simulated the dynamics of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets often failed to take into account the fact that melting ice sheets affect ocean processes.

Scientists say that it is no longer possible to keep the average temperature of the planet at an acceptable level. Details of the study by climate physicists from the Institute of Basic Sciences in Korea were provided by Science Alert.

According to him, to solve this problem, even if it is possible to stabilize the Earth’s temperature, which reaches a maximum of 2 ° C, will not work. The giant ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica will still fall, as they are on their way to irreversible melting.

“The shields will begin to break down and melt at an accelerated rate. The tipping point is approaching faster than expected. Early computer models simulating the dynamics of the Greenland and Antarctica ice sheets often did not take into account the fact that the melting of the ice sheets affects ocean processes, which also affect the ice sheets and the Earth’s atmosphere.

In addition, the situation is affected by additional heat, generated from the fact that the ice on land and in the sea continues to melt at an increasing rate, the melt water flows into the ocean and concentrates on the surface, thus reduces the transfer of heat from the depth, and therefore only increases the average temperature of the intestine. As a result, a large amount of melt water enters the ocean.

“The point of no return will be passed when we hit 1.8°C. The only way humanity can prevent rapid sea level rise is by keeping temperatures below 1.5°C. Without action, the retreating glaciers will continue to raise sea levels by at least 100 centimeters over the next 130 years,” the experts concluded.

We remind you, early scientists said that by 2050 there will be no glacier on Kilimanjaro.
